Leaving still a few questions about the practical implications for the event, Artemis Racing announces—

Alameda, CA – June 7, 2013 Artemis Racing is back at work following the memorial service for Andrew “Bart” Simpson. Starting on Monday, June 3 the team resumed its preparation in earnest to compete in the 34th America’s Cup.

The team is now working to ready its second AC72, which it expects to launch in a few weeks and which will undergo a rigorous testing regime. When the sailing team is satisfied that the boat can be pushed hard in race conditions, it will join the competition.

“We are working around-the-clock to get our new boat ready, in the water and to prepare our team to race” said Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing. “We still have a mountain to climb, but our plan is to launch our new boat in early July and get ourselves in a position where we can race by the end of the month.”
